Mindanao island, the second-largest island in the Philippines, was hit by three devastating earthquakes in October 2019, affecting more than 260,000 people. SSIO volunteers in Philippines immediately sprang into action, collecting nearly 900 kg of relief goods and made plans to distribute essential food items to the earthquake victims. Partnering with volunteers from the Asian Development Bank, SSIO volunteers visited Mindanao on 9th and 10th November and served about 2,500 people. They distributed grocery packs with rice, noodles, milk powder, biscuits, clothes and blankets.
